CAGI offers “SmartSite” learning center
The Compressed Air and Gas Institute (CAGI) activated its “SmartSite,” on-line center for learning and technical information. A key feature of SmartSite is its E-Learning courseware. Titled Introduction to Compressed Air Systems, this courseware offers users industry-standard training, available 24/7, that is manufacturer and product neutral. It allows participants to learn at their own pace, in the comfort of their homes or offices, and eliminates the need to travel or spend hours at a time in the classroom.
With continued access to the courseware for a year, students can plan refresher sessions or resolve even the most complex questions, and they can use the courses as Continued Education Units, where CEUs are needed.
In addition to the E-Learning courseware, the SmartSite will, over time, incorporate most of CAGI’s information resources, such as technical papers, videos, CDs and placement of orders for its widely used handbook.
CAGI’s SmartSite can be reached at www.cagi.org/home.asp and click on the Smartsite logo.

But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
